Savour the aromas of ripe red fruit, spice box, and violets in our classic Merlot-predominant, fruit-forward Meritage. Enjoy this smooth and soft, medium-to-full-bodied wine with a long finish.
This Meritage is a blend of 88% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1% Cabernet Franc. Each fraction of grapes was fermented separately and then carefully blended after 15 months of barrel maturation in a combination of seasoned French and American oak barrels. Mainly pump overs were used for extraction to create this fresh, fruit-forward wine. It was bottle-aged for an additional 6 months before release.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this food-friendly Meritage with beef short ribs, Beef Wellington, steak, or vegetarian ratatouille.
